Binary Numbers

We have been learning to count in Binary this week. We had a fantastic time learning this new secret code and have enjoyed learning more about how the computers we use talk to each other.

It was exciting trying to count all the way to 32 on just 1 hand and we are looking forward to confusing everyone by writing the date in binary in our workbooks!

Here we are counting with 5 bits - we had only learnt it for the first time 20 minutes before and we were understandably very proud of ourselves!


We wanted to share some of the things we learnt from our lesson and have added them below.

Thanks Adam, isn't it amazing that the computers only know two numbers but can do so much with them? I like the way you have chosen to share the starting point for everything your class has been learning...thanks!

That is amazing, you all have birthdays that your computers can understand. I wonder if they will buy you a present on your birthday now they know when it is..

Isn't it amazing that you have a birthday that your computer now understands. I wonder if that means your computer will buy you a present when your birthday comes around? Wouldn't that be cool..?!

You are all showing us that learning can be such fun! Well done West Base!

Looks like you had a lot of fun! Some of you have birthdays on the same number day. Do you think binary is easier or harder than Roman numerals? As you counted up, which "bit" had the most changes to do and which had the fewest?
